HIDING TO BE CLOSE
“Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan.” 1Kings 17:3
The Lord God had told His prophet Elijah to declare a famine to punish the idolatrous Israel. Elijah had much work to do, preaching God’s message, resisting idolatry, and facing a hostile king. However, God calls Elijah to leave everything and hide to get close to Him! God knew Elijah needed to have a quiet time with Him in order to be strengthened. Sometimes it is a lot of work to be done opposing God’s enemies, but it is then that He calls you out to spend quality time with Him. Surely, He calls you to cease work and to enjoy feasting in His presence. So today, when God calls you to hide and be alone, that’s when God waits to talk to you personally about what lies ahead for you!
When God wants you to hide away from the world, isn’t He inviting you to get close to Him?
Lord, when I am alone with You, then am I close to You and strengthened. Amen.
